[ANN] Attractively priced XMLmind DocBook Editor; free Personal Edition

XMLmind is happy to announce three new products: XMLmind DITA Editor[1],
XMLmind DocBook Editor[2], XMLmind XHTML Editor[3].
These products are attractively priced, “special editions” of
XMLmind XML Editor v7. Because they focus on a single class of
documents, these specialized editors are slightly faster and simpler
to use than XMLmind XML Editor. More information in
"Which editor to choose?"[4].

A Personal License[5] is now available for XMLmind XML Editor,
XMLmind DITA Editor, XMLmind DocBook Editor and XMLmind XHTML Editor.
This makes our four editors free to use by many persons and
organizations. More information in "Which license to choose?"[6].

The Personal Editions of XMLmind XML Editor, XMLmind DITA Editor,
XMLmind DocBook Editor and XMLmind XHTML Editor may be freely
downloaded from this page[7].

New version 7.0 also has substantial enhancements and a number of bug
fixes. All these enhancements aim to make our XML editors simpler and
more straightforward to use.

Recursive use of elements <option> and <optional>

In docbook 4.x it was possible to use <optional> in a recursive way, eg: 
https://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/static/sql-createtable.html or 
https://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/static/sql-select.html. Optional 
elements often are only valid under the additional demand, that they are 
part of another optional element. The same holds true for arguments of 
commands or procedures.

We try to upgrade to docbook 5.x, but the schema doesn't allow the 
recursive use of <option> and <optional>. Do you have an advice how to 
express such situations? Do you have plans to modify the docbook 5 
schema to allow recursive use of the two elements?

Kind Regards

DocBook TC meeting moved to 22 June

Actually, it turns out that I too have a conflict for the 15th, so based 
on the responses I have received, I'm moving the meeting to 22nd June. 
Hope the late notice doesn't inconvenience anyone.  I'll send out the 
agenda next week.

What happened to <at> moreinfo?

Hi,

just wondering about the moreinfo attribute. It was available in
DocBook 4.x, but not in DocBook 5.x anymore.

Looking at the TDG5 I can't find any information about it. Neither on
the OASIS site.

Would be nice if someone could clarify this. :)

6.  Publisher's and eLearning subcommittee reports

Nothing to report.

7.  XInclude 1.1 status.

We think we have enough Statements of Use to submit to OASIS.

ACTION: Bob will round up the SoUs and submit them.

9.  Housekeeping: we have two parallel systems for filing RFEs

We should shut down the SourceForge system and add a notice

     RFEs under discussion

     Ticket  Tracker
      260   2820947  Ability to transclude text
      273   3035565  Allow sections at any level
      291   3491860  license tag  (hold for 5.2)

      Github Issues
      6              Add buildtarget element
      7              Allow revnumber inline.

      New RFEs on GitHub
      53    Extend article  <at> class with other and otherclass

The committee agreed that this change should be made to article.
Are there other elements that might need similar treatment that
we can do at the same time?

ACTION: Jirka to investigate use of otherclass for other
elements.

      54    Add XIncludes to Assembly Schema

Larry thought the existing mechanisms defined in assembly could
do this, but wasn't sure.

ACTION: Bob to investigate assembly for XInclude equivalents.

      55    Add <danger> to list of admonitions

The committee agreed that since this is an ISO standard it would
be good to add to DocBook.  If we finalize it, it will be for
version 5.2.  Are there other similar standards?

ACTION: Larry will look into ISO standards for admonitions.

ACTION: Scott to look into ANSI standards for admonitions.

      56    DocBook Transclusion: allow 'prefix' in trans:idfixup

Jirka reported that prefix was considered originally, but that
suffix made more sense.  Adding prefix as well adds complexity to
processing.  Only one implementation so far.  The Committee will
reconsider this in the future.

Balisage: The Markup Conference

FYI: (Hope to see you there!)

Balisage: The Markup Conference
2016 Program Now Available
http://www.balisage.net/2016/Program.html

Balisage: where serious markup practitioners and theoreticians meet every August.

The 2016 program includes papers discussing reducing ambiguity in
linked-open-data annotations, the visualization of XSLT execution
patterns, automatic recognition of grant- and funding-related
information in scientific papers, construction of an interactive
interface to assist cybersecurity analysts, rules for graceful
extension and customization of standard vocabularies, case studies of
agile schema development, a report on XML encoding of subtitles for
video, an extension of XPath to file systems, handling soft hyphens in
historical texts, an automated validity checker for formatted pages,
one no-angle-brackets editing interface for scholars of German family
names and another for scholars of Roman legal history, and a survey of
non-XML markup such as Markdown.

XML In, Web Out: A one-day Symposium on the sub rosa XML that powers
an increasing number of websites will be held on Monday, August 1.
http://balisage.net/XML-In-Web-Out/

If you are interested in open information, reusable documents, and
vendor and application independence, then you need descriptive markup,
and Balisage is the conference you should attend. Balisage brings
together document architects, librarians, archivists, computer
scientists, XML practitioners, XSLT and XQuery programmers, implementers of
XSLT and XQuery engines and other markup-related software, Topic-Map
enthusiasts, semantic-Web evangelists, standards developers,
academics, industrial researchers, government and NGO staff,
industrial developers, practitioners, consultants, and the world's
greatest concentration of markup theorists. Some participants are busy
designing replacements for XML while other still use SGML (and know
why they do).

Discussion is open, candid, and unashamedly technical.
